Understanding how tile works and how to care for it will go a long way in ensuring every project is a success. There are three main types of tile: porcelain, ceramic, and stone. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are made from a mix of clay and other natural materials. Porcelain tiles are created using denser clays and higher firing temperatures for a more durable product. It fares tremendous either indoors or outdoors. Sturdy and resilient, porcelain comes in a wide range of style options: there are even tiles made to resemble your favourite hardwoods.
Ceramic tiles are used for walls and indoor applications, while porcelain is used for flooring and outdoor settings. However, tile manufacturers are now creating ceramic products that are just as tough as porcelain. Ceramic tile is always elegant and ever-so-stylish. Affordable and enduring, ceramic tiles are one of the most popular product families. Ceramic is made from glazed or unglazed clay, which is finished in a kiln. It’s trendy in the bathroom or kitchen.
